Manuel Velasquez : “Man Arrested for Fatally Shooting Father in Nevada Home as 911 Call Captures Grisly Final Conversation”

Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : A 28-year-old man from Nevada has been arrested after allegedly killing his own father in their home. The shocking incident unfolded while emergency dispatchers listened to the grisly final conversation between the two family members. Isaac M. Velasquez, who reportedly defaced the inside of his parents’ home with pentagrams and the number “666,” was taken into custody and charged with open murder with a deadly weapon.

The altercation began in the kitchen, prompting Velasquez’s mother to call 911. She fled to a neighbor’s house, leaving the phone behind but keeping the call connected. The dispatcher continued to monitor the call, hearing arguing and a possible gunshot. Two additional calls were made, one from Manuel Velasquez, the victim, stating that he had been shot by his son, and another from Isaac Velasquez’s mother, reporting the shooting from the neighbor’s home.

When officers arrived at the scene, they found Manuel Velasquez in the master bedroom with multiple gunshot wounds. Despite medical personnel’s efforts, he succumbed to his injuries. According to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, investigations revealed that Isaac Velasquez was holding a gun during the altercation and shot his father.

Isaac Velasquez had fled the scene by the time officers arrived but was later found attempting to hide in a nearby yard. A probable cause affidavit provided more details, stating that Isaac Velasquez’s mother had taken him to the pharmacy earlier that night. Upon returning home, he claimed he would bake a cake, and the parents went to bed. However, they were awakened by the sound of breaking glass and a possible gunshot from the kitchen. When Manuel Velasquez went downstairs to investigate, a physical altercation broke out with his son, resulting in Isaac Velasquez shooting him in the leg.

During the incident, Isaac Velasquez also allegedly strangled and pistol-whipped his mother before she fled and called 911. The dispatcher remained on the line for about eight minutes, during which a series of gunshots could be heard. Isaac Velasquez reportedly exclaimed, “Hey ambulance, I killed my own father.” The final conversation between father and son included Isaac Velasquez wishing his father “God bless you in hell” and his father responding, “I’m dead, Isaac. I’m dead.”

Inside the house, police discovered two pentagrams in the kitchen, offensive language, the number “666,” and the phrase “F— Jesus.” Isaac Velasquez is currently held without bond at the Clark County Detention Center and is scheduled to appear in court on December 4th.
